Why Spay and Neuter Surgeries Matter for Your Exotic Pet
We regularly perform spay and neuter surgeries on rabbits and several other species. These surgeries are essential for preventing unplanned pregnancies and lessening or even averting reproductive illnesses. Doing this can also boost your pet’s chances of living a life that is longer, happier, and healthier.
We're here to walk you through what's involved in your pet's spay or neuter surgery so you'll have a clear picture of what the recovery might look like. The key is to keep a careful eye on your pet during their recovery and contact us if you notice anything unusual.
Other Surgical Procedures We Offer
Beyond spaying and neutering, our skilled team can also take on the following types of surgeries:
- Egg-binding treatments
- Elective avian spays
- Care for wounds and dead tissue
- Ovariectomies in reptiles
- Removal of lumps and masses
- Procedures for reproductive issues
- Eye removals
- Operations for ear stenosis (common in lop-eared bunnies)
Enhancing Safety and Comfort at All Surgery Phases
We take all the necessary steps to make sure your pet is secure before, during, and after their surgical appointment. Anesthesia is often the trickiest part of any surgery, and we are very careful to adjust it to suit your pet's size, age, weight, species, and health status. We use a variety of advanced monitoring devices to keep tabs on vitals such as:
- Heartbeat (ECG)
- Breathing rate
- Blood pressure
- Oxygen levels in the blood
- Core body temperature
We also adapt pain management strategies post-surgery, using a range of pain relief options to lessen any discomfort your pet may feel. Feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns you might have about your pet's upcoming surgery.
